The finish on this product is different than the original. The OEM antenna is a matte black while this Shorty Antenna is gloss black. You can see the difference in the product picture. It’s obvious when installing it but is quickly forgotten. And, the finish of the new antenna is far less noticeable than the length of the original.
A shorter antenna may result in reduced radio reception. If you listen to the radio often and live in an area with lots of broadcast obstructions, you may notice less reception.
